Automotive Management Program History

The Automotive Management program degree was first offered in 1971. At that time it was called the Automotive and Heavy Equipment Management degree or AHM. It was created to satisfy a need from the industry for managers with a technical background. The demand for this unique skill set has not changed and the program has been providing the industry with graduates in both the retail and the manufacturing side of the business world.

Classes in this degree are regularly revised through consultation with industry partners. We provide a curriculum that is up-to-date so that graduates may "hit the ground running" and find careers and career paths that satisfy their goals and meet the needs of industry.
